June Tag Swap hosted by Arlene - MyButterflyKisses12

The theme was French Postcard and the challenge Collage.  My recipe:

• Staples postcards in matte white, image of Carte Postale from The Graphics Fairy -

• Postcards glued with Scotch Quick-Dry Adhesive to medium weight chipboard of same size (5 1/2 x 4 1/4 inches)

• Postage stamp cut with my Cricut using the Gypsy to size it to .82 x .82 inches from the Sweethearts cartridge by using the new hide feature so only the outside is cut

• On the cut out stamp I added an image from a Studio G stamp set with photo images which also has the little camera I used in the lower right hand corner

• The postage stamp was then adhered with dimensional adhesive and overstamped with a postmark stamp from Inkadinkado #8376 (2 of 4)

• Eiffel Tower image, along with all the images on the back, are from Graphics Fairy, printed on parchment paper for an added vintage look without having to use ink

• Edges of the front were rubbed with Vintage Photo Distresses ink using a finger dauber

• I left a personalized message ‘I Love Paris' in French for each of the people in my swap group

• The back has a floral note card glued and French text inked on either side of it with a collage of vintage French advertising and my personal information for the swap.
